Tony Letigre, aka @tony longshanks on this site and others, was struck by a car and killed while riding his bicycle on Hwy 101 in Corte Madera, CA. He was 42 years old. We worked together enthusiastically in Homes Not Jails in San Francisco 2012. He was an avid writer who helped put together the zone "It's Vacant, Take It" as well as an exelent chronicle of his experience with HNJ posted on this site. After leaving SF, he stayed in Portland for a few years before going back down to the north bay area where he last lived. Tony, you will be missed.

Oh no.....!! A while back, I spoke with him about zines, and I followed his Tumblr until he quit that and went to a private Instagram account. Though we weren't friends or anything, I still think the world lost a unique and special soul. R.I.P.

A digi-nomad's life for me?
Met a super sweet old traveler girl yesterday been off the road 6 months. So stoked on life right now
Amtrak crew change. Hiding from the bull
Got a new bicycle today! I feel so much better
Hitched from Ft. Collins, CO to Laramie, WY in three rides and an hour and a half. Today’s a good day.
Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
Reacquainting myself with STP after a stupid long time. Bare with me as I post in the wrong places and suck at pretty much everything here
Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.
